How does it perform for back ventilation?


How does it perform for back ventilation?

A lot of great reviews... but none have mentioned anything in terms of the back ventilation. With a 14m commute, I am looking for something that will breath well and minimize back sweat. Was considering the mesh framed Stratus for this reason... thoughts or advice?

Also, is this all top-load or is there a front/back access as well?


Responded on

The backpanel is a closed cell foam that is ridged to create air channels--not bad ventilation but not the absolute best either. If you are not willing to go without removed backpanel ventilation, give the Stratos a try.

Word of warning, since the Stratos has a removed backpanel, the frame is super stiff and has been known to bump against the helmet while riding...
